As a traveling couple we decided early on to split everything down the middle. This keeps it simple and fair and we won’t get into arguments about money down the track. This also ensures that both our journeys last the same amount of time as opposed to one of us busting our budget. We plan to stick to $50 per day per person + travel expenses, especially when we take flights.
This doesn’t mean I won’t shout Emma her favorite Barley or Sugarcane drink from time to time!
